Richard Mayhew (born April 3, 1924) is an Afro-Native American landscape painter, illustrator, and arts educator. His abstract, brightly colored landscapes are informed by his experiences as an African American/Native American and his interest in Jazz and the performing arts. Mayhew was a member of Spiral, a black painters’ group in the 1960s in New York that included Romare Bearden, Charles Alston and Hale Woodruff as members. From 1963 to 1977, Mayhew taught at many schools, including the Pratt Institute, the Art Students League, Smith College, Hunter College, San Jose State University, and Sonoma State University. From 1977 to 1991, Mayhew was a professor in the visual arts at the Pennsylvania State University. After retiring from Pennsylvania State University, Mayhew returned to Santa Cruz, California.
